The National Hospital, Abuja, established under Decree 36 of 1999 [now, Act 36 of 1999], was commissioned on May of 1999 by the Former Head of State, His Excellency, General Abdusalami Abubakar, and opened its door to patients on 11th October 1999, when the first baby [female] was delivered
The Hospital was originally designed to cater for the needs of women and children in Nigeria and the West African sub-region with a view to reduce morbidity and mortality rates, and to carry out extensive research into the peculiar causes of women and children- related diseases in Africa.
However, in order for the vast majority of Nigerians to benefit from the services and modern equipment in the Hospital, the scope of its operation was expanded to accomodate male patients. Initially christened 'National Hospital For Women And Children', the National Hospital, Abuja' came into effect from 10 May 2000.
Our strength lies in the use of state-of-the-art technology in a clean, conducive and patient friendly environment, using highly skilled and motivated staff who see their employment here more as a vocation than a bread basket.
